According to ABC News, officials there have granted bin Laden amnesty. As long as he leads a peaceful life, bin Laden can remain free in Pakistan, said Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan Khan.
Reuters confirms that the Pakistani military has agreed to pull out of the tribal region along the Afghan border where bin Laden is believed to have found sanctuary. In exchange, al-Qaida and the Taliban reportedly have agreed to stop attacking military outposts reluctantly set up in response to heavy pressure from the White House.
The Pakistani army is also returning captured Taliban weapons and prisoners and dismantling newly built checkposts. Reuters observed a Pakistani army commander, Maj. Gen. Azhar Ali Shah, hugging militants after the pact was inked.

Yesterday Pakistan said they WEREN'T going to agree to that (which means they will, but on the Q.T.).
DOes anyone really think Wacky Paki was ever going to hunt, find, arrest, and turn over Bin Laden (assuming he's still alive which I don't think he is)?
Besides, he's just a figure head. Killing him doesn't alter how the terrorist operate. TOo many are ignorant to think that killing him means the end of our problems. It's not. One man doesn't run the show. We need to kill as many of these bastards as we can like they are fruit flies in your kitchen. They have only one thing on their mind and that is to kill us. Better to deliver them to hell in a hand basket by our own bullets and bombs than have them do it to us.
Sad to say, we won't because we live in a screwed up PC world where a war is being dictated by our media and the terrorists are taking advantage of it.
It's 25 million from the US govt, plus 2 Million from the Pilots association.
The 'tribal areas' of Pakistan are not under the central authority of Pakistan, nor have they ever been. Alexander the Great couldn't conquer those areas, and he tried. They have never recognized any authority other than their own.
As far as JBL finding the area a safe haven; the concept of granting sanctuary and hospitality to anyone as long as they live a peaceful life while within their area is a concept that has been extant in that area since well before Islam. Or Christ, for that matter. Probably before Moses.
I'm voting for Mitt!
Since the Paki's wont do anything and since invading Paki in impossible politicly, I think giving UBL amnesty is a great idea.
Get him nice and comfortable, remove the bounty, let him come out of his hole, then drop a 2000lbs bomb on his head!
Fine........lets get our people out of there and nuc the place, may not stop the terrorists but may teach them the benefits of screwing with us.
Let me guess,is this what a "pro" USA government in Iraq is going to operate like also !!!
This is not justice for the 9/11 victims. Pakistan is a poor ally if not an actual enemy. They are also weapon proliferators.
For more on Pakistan's treachery - I have several posts on this matter including Pakistan's assistance to Iran nuclear program by supplying them with equipment and in the last few months highly enriched uranium to build their first of five weapons
Don't drink the MSM koolaid. Bush and Rummy have it under control. We're killing them by the score in Afghanistan.
